Green Electrical provide OLEV-approved electric vehicle charging installations for homes and businesses across London and Hertfordshire. Electric vehicle grants are available for both homeowners and business owners alike, making EV charging more accessible and affordable.
The Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) is issuing grants allowing electric vehicles and some hybrid car owners to claim up to 75% back from the total cost of purchasing and installing a charging point at your home or business, capped to a maximum of £500.
There are two types of OLEV grants available dependent on your circumstances: The Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) and The Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS).
Our electricians are well versed in the electric vehicle industry so can provide comprehensive advice, guidance and recommendations about the grant application process, suitability of EV charger and the installation process. Please contact us on 0800 051 9324.
A criterion for each of these grants has to be met before the grant can be issued and only OLEV-approved installers can apply for this grant on behalf of the vehicle owner. Luckily for Green Electrical customers, our electricians are OLEV-approved so we can take away the hard work from you and apply for a grant on your behalf.
The OLEV grant criteria:
The Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) is a government initiative grant that is available to electric and hybrid vehicle owners across the United Kingdom.
The grant means homeowners could see 75% of the costs of purchasing and installing an EV home charging point be returned to them (capped to a maximum of £500). For homeowners, they are eligible to claim up to two charging points per household.
By taking advantage of the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme you can make your EV charging point installation substantially more affordable.
If you’re considering installing an EV charging point for your property, please read about our Electric Car Charger Home Installation service for more information.
The Workplace Charging Scheme, also known as WCS, allows UK businesses to apply for a grant for up to a maximum of 20 charging points, a saving of £10,000, with each charging unit being capped at £500.
Businesses considering applying for the WCS grant are not required to have a fleet of electric vehicles, but they are required to provide evidence for the need for electric vehicle charging points.
By installing an EV charging point at your business you’re taking steps to reduce your carbon footprint, future-proofing your business for the rise in electric vehicles and helping your employees save money on tax when they opt for a zero-emission vehicle!
